. that's the bold call today from the international energy agency. fueling that energy renaissance: a boost in oil and shale gas because of new technologies like fracking. the group also expects the u.s. will be a net exporter by 2030, meaning we'll sell more oil than we bring in. right now the u.s. imports 20% of its energy needs. >> susie: so our word on the street tonight is "oil". joining us, gregg greenberg, reporter at the street.com. hey, gregg, i know you have been talking to a lot of oil experts today. it's kind of hard to imagine the u.s. after all these years being energy independent. what were they telling new what did you hear? look, scsi, the trend is certainly favorable. it's nice to hear we are producing more energy here in america and much greater than the reverse but i have to take reports like this with a grigg grain of salt. we have been hearing about peak energy for a long time, hearing about saudi arabia's reserves for a long time and you have to take it with a haley dose of skepticism, good news then again you have to be a little bit keptic. >> susie: all rig
in the president's second term. those concerns were evident in selling today of energy, banking and healthcare stocks. a quick look at the price board at the new york stock exchange is a good barometer for the worrywarts out there. wall street veteran teddy weissberg says many investors are just plain upset. >> there was an expectation that we would have some change and a change in the policies. and, i think with obama getting re-elected there are a lot of folks that are not happy, and we're kind of seeing that in the stock market. >> reporter: but, others say it's not just the disappointment of romney's loss, it's that the fiscal cliff now looms large on wall street. >> i think the big issue right now is the fiscal cliff, now that the election is behind us everyone is really focusing on what's going to happen at the end of this year, and of course if nothing's done by the end of the year that may very well mean a recession as early as next year. >> reporter: still, the best news for equity investors is that the election was decisive. the next few days or weeks will not be dominated by challen
by financial and energy groups. now, after the closing bell, the focus was on cicso systems. the internet gear maker reported its quarterly results late today. and those results were two cents better than estimates. net sales were up from last year, too, and higher than expected. c-s-c-o has been undergoing a restructuring for the past year, managing uncertain demand for its telecommunications equipment's pinched profit margins. the stock was flat before tonight's earnings report. shares were up about 4% in extended hours trading. now, as erika reported earlier, home depot's strong third quarter earnings and optimistic outlook really helped drive buying interest. today's 3.6% rally came on more than double its usual volume, and takes the stock to its highest price since 1999. but the buying interest did not extend to home depot's main rival, lowe's. lowe's shares were essentially unchanged even though volume was slightly heavier than average. home depot wasn't alone in reporting strong earnings. dick's sporting goods boosted full-year outlook after a better than expected quarter. shares added
things. you need great intellectual energy and physical energy. petraeus is the first guy since world war ii the public has known. the irony, it to me -- one of the surprises to me in writing this book is the people we lionize, the soldiers of world war ii, they were the people became the generals of vietnam. the we rightly demonized. they're the same men. the difference is, world war ii, there was accountability. in world war ii, success was rewarded, the failure was punished. nobody knows -- first american commander in the african european in the army in world war ii. he was fired. a bunch of other generals were fired. they were replaced by names -- in 1940, dwight eisenhower was lieutenant-colonel on the west coast. george marshall picked him out and said that is the type of guy i need and began promoting these guys. we do not have leadership these days. instead, we have a parade of generals go into iraq. mediocrity, not doing much. coming home feeling entitled to a promotion. that is what has happened to the military over the last 50 years. tavis: what is at the epicenter of this -- 1
dollars more a year to california. half of that money is going in the first five years to renewable energy projects, energy efficiency projects at schools. going to create a lot of jobs. and its chairman who put $29 million into it is probably going to be a novembcandidate f governor. >> or cabinet. >> why proposition 38 went down? the other education -- >> well, i think part of it was the amount of money that the teacher's union sent against it. and the governor coming out, saying, look, we just have to get this done. but it went down by a greater margin than i thought. there were a lot of people who voted for both, sort of hinging their bet. and i think there was a lot on the ball lot for all voters and i thought to a large degree they seemed very thoughtful. >> and to paul's point, a lot of people would have had to pay under the munger legislation. >> everybody. >> where at some of the others, i'm not in that category. >> belva: turning back to the national scene, we're going to see some changes in the new administration in washington? >> well, there are some californians, we talked abo

's got so much going on i can concentrate on my own -- people were giving him energy. now the players go hang on a minute. he's got enough to deal with. i know his swing is this and that and he can't play like he used to. i'll use that 10% of energy i was worrying about him where he was in the lead. i worry about myself now. and these youngsters have, like -- have got the freedom too go and play and they've had the opportunity to beat tiger and they more than likely will keep it. >> rose: if you were 21 today and in good as health as you've ever been, whose swing would you like to have? >> well, the best -- i mean, adams god. >> rose: what makes adam scott -- >> well, again, back to fundamentals. great grip, great posture, great takeaway, great body movement. the kids now have this wonderful -- we use track man. >> rose: kids like people like adam scott, rory mcelroy. >> well, i'd go to 15. these kids now have the knowledge where we did -- we were the pioneers of this knowledge. we didn't know how hard to train could you lift weights to train, what could we eat on the golf course? the fi
volume was 757 million shares on the big board; just under 1.9 billion on the nasdaq. the energy sector led the sell- off, down 1.7%. consumer stocks were weak, falling 1.6%. and the tech sector was down another 1.4%. technology has been particular weak in this recent market sell- off. new product launches from apple and microsoft have not been enough to erase worries about consumer and company spending on technology. the sector exchange traded tells the story-- it fell 1.4% today at a three and a half month low. internet networking gear maker cisco systems was among those leading the way lower. it fell 2.2%. cisco is due to report earnings next week, giving investors a peak into its turnaround effort and corporate tech spending. the holiday sales may be starting earlier than ever this year, but some retailers, they've seen investor sales hit their stock prices. kohl's and coach target different types of shoppers, but both suffered stock drops. coach fell 5.3%. coach's business has been helped by its stores in china. a new set of communist leaders are expected to be announced in china i

, frankly, the time and energy to devote to trying to catch up. they thought they could lock down this primary nomination by the end of january or early february and what end up happening is they played the sort of extended game of whack-a-mole where a different candidate came up every month and it wasn't until the end of april that they secured the nomination and at that point the romney campaign was pretty much broke. his image was battered by the nominating battle where he lurched to the right on a number of issues and he was in a bad position to take on the obama machine. they began to try to assemble a ground game and started raising money but even up until the end of the election this month, they didn't catch up displood in just a very little time we have left, carol leigh what, would you say the obama folks said made the difference? the front-end spending that allowed them to soften romney up ahead of going into the republican convention, and they caught some breaks, too. if you remember, romney's 47% tape came right after the moment and underscored-- the argument they were
the business community. i know there's a lot of energy over the last couple of years and anger about the president, his plans and all that. now is the time for them to say, okay, he is our president. >> rose: right. >> there is no question on his validity. there's no question about -- and he wants to work with people. that is his nature. it truly is in spite of what may be said in the campaign. the business community has to come together and say okay, we may disagree but there are a whole host of things. like immigration. i know the business community, chamber of commerce, whole bunch of others who are historically republican are very much desirous to help the economy but getting real immigration reform. let's push it, work with the president, come into the president, come into the administration and say look, okay, you won. we didn't like it, we don't like it but let's work together. i think the business community has got to have that attitude and not just hope and pray as they did the last year and a half, many of them, that he wouldn't get reelected. well, that didn't work so well
